Lewis Hamilton's hopes of clinching the Championship title took a blow this afternoon.

The Stevenage driver finished fourth in the Hungarian Grand Prix after he allowed his Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas to pass him on the last corner and finish just ahead of him in third place.

Milton Keynes-based Red Bull driver Daniel Ricciardo wasn't able to make it to the finish line.

He was knocked out of the race in the first lap following a collision with teammate Max Verstappen. The teenager suffered a ten second penalty and crossed the line in fifth position.

Vettel's victory moves him 14 points ahead of Hamilton in the championship.

Formula 1 Test driver Maria De Villota has returned home to Spain after spending over two weeks at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge.

She was testing the Marussia F1 Team car in a straight-line speed test at Duxford airfield in Cambridgeshire earlier this month when her vehicle crashed into a support truck.

The Spanish driver who is 32, suffered serious head and facial injuries in the crash and lost the sight of her right eye. She underwent two operations at Addenbrooke's.

Her team Marussia said in a statement, "Maria left Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge yesterday [Saturday] and returned directly to Spain. Over the course of the past two weeks Maria has made significant progress.

"More comfortable and familiar surroundings, plus the support of her wider family and friends, will undoubtedly provide a more conducive environment in which Maria can commence the next phase of her recovery.

"Marussia have remained in close contact with the medical team at Addenbrooke's Hospital since Maria's admittance and would like to express their gratitude for the remarkable care and attention she has received there."

Silverstone responds to criticism

The managing director of Silverstone, Richard Phillips, has vowed to carry on in his job despite the traffic chaos which overshadowed the British Grand Prix weekend.

Although raceday attracted a record crowd of 127,000 fans, it's estimated the Northamptonshire circuit may lose as much as £1m after spectators were asked to stay away from attending Saturday's qualifying session.
